Ruga Cattle Settlements: Federal Government explains the pros amidst mixed reactions.
– Tobi Olusakin, ABH Press
Since the federal government revealed its plan to set up ‘Ruga Settlements’ across different states of the federation, there have been various reactions (both positive and negative).
This prompted the presidency to take the pains in explaining to Nigerians and the general public, what the Buhari-led administration seeks to achieve by establishing the settlement.
However in a State House press release on Sunday evening, the presidency explained benefits of the planned scheme and why Nigerians should embrace the programme.
The full statement from the presidency reads:
Despite the explanations, there have been online criticisms from various individuals. People are still slow to trust this programmed, some feel that it has clandestine undertones which are not yet readily available for the masses to recognise.
Benue house of assembly has also rejected this programme, stating that the state will not take part in the programme.
More information will be provided as it unfolds.
